The Cherubim and Seraphim Church in Akure on Thursday said no fewer than four branches of the church had been sealed up following allegation of doctrinal misconduct.
The sanctioned branches of the church were alleged to be involved in fetish practices which it said was not acceptable by the church and Christianity as a whole.
The Ondo State President of Unification of Cherubim and Seraphim, Primate Ade Ademisokun, stated this in Akure, the state capital, during a press conference heralding his installation as Baba-Alakoso of C&S in the area.
He said, “We have sealed some churches, up to four and they still remain sealed because they know nothing about Cherubim and Seraphim, yet they are operating C & S church.
“They were caught with fetish things and we have zero-tolerance for such. We are not going to take that any more. So, those who have accepted to be trained will be allowed to come in and we’ll put them under the care of elders.
“We have the instrument to seal any branch caught with fetish because our disciplinary procedure is registered with the government. That is our stand in Akure and its environs and even in Ondo State as a whole.”
Ademisokun further stated that the present leadership of the church in the area was bent on putting some things right and addressing some missing areas.
